Luckenbach, Texas    (1977)

The only two things in life that make it worth living
Is guitars tuned good and firm-feeling women.
Well, I don't need my name in the marquee lights,
I got my song and I got you with me tonight.
Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're living's
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between Hank Williams pain songs,
Steve Goodman train songs,
Blue eyes crying in the rain,
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain't nobody feeling no pain.

So baby let's sell your diamond ring
To buy some boots and faded jeans and go away.
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society you cry all day.
We've been so busy keeping up with the Jones
Four-car garage and we're still building on.
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love.

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas,
Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we're living's
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between Hank Williams pain songs,
Steve Goodman train songs,
Blue eyes crying in the rain,
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain't nobody feeling no pain.

Lyrics by Bobby Gene Emmons and Chips Moman.
